Summary: I really don't understand why this printer is rated so high. I bought this printer as a high quality replacement for an HP I had for many years (PSC750) and it sucks. The ink runs out in what seems like 5 prints and there are about 7 different individual color cartridges at 13 bucks a pop that need...
Summary: I have owned 2 canon printers before this. I have owned, upgraded, still own a line of Canon Cameras & lenses. I've been happy with everything. Until now. Does this printer print well? I guess. Is it fast, not particularly, but we don't need speedy printing.
Summary: I'll get right to the point - this printer does a quick cleaning of the heads after every single print job. Yes, one minute after every print job the printer can be heard doing a quick cleaning.
Summary: This is a great little printer if you like to buy ink on a regular schedule. I use this printer intermitently and it makes great prints, works fast, is easy to use, and I am all around very happy with it except that whether or not you use the color printing, the color inks run out on a regular...

Many of the reviews I read were all very Positive about the printer, the only Negative ones I read was the issue on ink usage! Those who say that the Pixma 980 is an INK MONSTER is just plain old "CHEAP"!
Summary: I have owned this printer for nearly a year now, and I can say beyond a doubt that it's the worst printer purchase I've ever made. Does it print beautiful photos? Sure, but I can get higher quality digital prints cheaper at the store than I can make them at home.
Summary: It works fine, but you must use either Canon Cartridges or, alternatively, if you want to re-fill you have to buy some special cartridges with electronic chips on them. This is because there's all kinds of validation on the printer computer to check the following: Ink is full or not, genuine Canon...
Good performance; great quality; crappy software; very expensive to run

Summary: This printer does everything I wanted it to do, and does it well in excess of my expectations. Plain paper printing is excellent, and the photo prints are simply gorgeous. I cannot tell the difference between this printer's photo output and store-bought prints.
Summary: THIS PRINTER WILL JUST SPOIL YOU.I AM TOTALLY HOOKED .MY WIFE IS JUST THRILLED WITH IT THAT SHE STOPPED USING HER PRINTER IT IS HOOKED UP TO WORK WIRELESSLY WITH MY ALUMINUM MACBOOK PRO. THEY WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER .THE PRINTER HOLDS YOUR HAND FOR EVERY FUNCTION IT DOES. IT IS SO EASY TO USE.
